The Power of Connectivity.

Our know-how is linking two worlds.

Our know-how links two worlds.

KEO is at home at the intersections of the Internet and things.

Every market follows its own rules. Knowing them is essential for the successful development of new solutions. In the case of connective devices, this actually means that a deep understanding of two markets is required: KEO offers a unique combination of know-how that covers both the Internet of Things and the devices industry.

More than two decades of experience with devices.

KEO is a spin-off of the Kellendonk Group, which has developed and produced hardware and software for devices for more than two decades – especially for heating, for white goods, for home and industry automation. This heritage is still characterising the thinking of our experts today. The development of high-quality devices for long-term use is in our DNA. Therefore, our customers can rely on a thorough understanding of the way devices – and the markets for devices – work.

Cutting-edge innovation on a solid foundation.

The perspectives and dynamics of the IoT have attracted a large number of new and innovative small players. KEO is sharing the start-up spirit of these companies. But at the same time, we provide a sustainable financial basis enabling large-scale projects and long-term partnerships. Most of our customers have relied on our competence for many years.

EEBUS is our language. From the very start.

Nobody knows EEBUS, the global language for energy in the IoT, better than we do. Our experts have participated in the development of EEBUS from the very first hour and have been a driving force in making it the leading standard for energy in the global IoT. The technical development of the standard and all plugfests of EEBUS so far have been accompanied by KEO developers. This outstanding experience and know-how makes KEO the market leader in the field of EEBUS implementations and the corresponding stacks.

The partner for companies who are leading. Today and in the future.

Our customers are among the shaping forces in the Internet of Things – as market leaders or game changers. Our broadly diversified experience makes us a very interesting partner for a multitude of companies from various sectors. The spectrum of our customers reaches from automotive over appliances and heating to the energy sector. The large number and variety of our partners is resulting in a very comprehensive cross-industry network which is probably one of the best available in the IoT sector.

Establishing new standards in energy efficiency.

The contribution of smart and connected devices to saving the global climate is the subject of various research activities. KEO is working at the forefront of the technological development. Our experts and our framework are consulted by the leading standardisation organisations and are playing a key role in several of the major European research projects:

  • VDE uses the KEO framework as reference implementation for their certification process
